There are many factors involved in selecting a coach. Things to consider are personality, learning and teaching styles, experience and technical know-how. You know your child and have the best idea of who might make a good fit. Keep your child's personality and needs in mind when interviewing and selecting coach.

Characteristics of a Quality Coach*

A quality coach:

  • makes skating fun by being: motivational, positive, encouraging, and enthusiastic
  • fosters a positive environment for training by being knowledgeable, professional, educated, organized, and punctual
  • prepares a child for testing and competing by being sensible, practical, polite, fair, respectful, calm, and experienced.
